This morning I woke up to a soar throat but only on the right side which is where I constantly hear my ear pulsating. When sleeping I have to lay my head a certain way, it doesn t stop just muffles the sound. Please Help!

Hello and welcome to HCM

You have not mentioned which of your glands are swollen.
You need to take saline gargles and pain killers for sore throat.
If the throat is aching you need to consult your doctor for prescription of antibiotics.

Muffling sound in the ear can be due to blockage of eustachian tube.
Eustachian tube is a tube which connects the middle ear with throat.
the end of the tube which opens into the throat can be inflammed due to throat infection.

Consult an ENT specialist for both the problems.

Thanks and take care
